The aim of the Medical Informatics Initiative (MII) is to enhance research and patient care through innovative IT solutions. These will enable the sharing and use of data from healthcare and from clinical and biomedical research across multiple entities and sites. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) is investing a total of 160 million euros in the initiative through 2021.
Headquartered in Berlin, TMF is a publicly-funded non-governmental organisation, committed to simplifying collaboration in medical research. A key goal is to provide digital support for health research data infrastructures and to foster the exchange of resources, expertise, and ideas.
